I’m not thrilled with my box this month. There isn’t anything I’ll really use. I’m honestly getting tired of beauty boxes in general. I much prefer the other themed boxes (like the stationary one I get).
It’s a pretty box, though.
Lots of hair stuff…and a perfume. Blah.
Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
Okay I might use this. I’ll try it at least. I have been wanting an eye cream to try. My eyes get super dry (mostly from allergies and only eye drops can fix that but some moisture around them helps) and I keep dark circles. It’s all natural. So, that’s cool. It’s also vegan for anyone that looks for that.
Facial Cleansing Gel Superfruit * CGF
This smells really good, like oranges, but it’s for combo to oily skin. It won’t work for my dry skin. I’ll pass it on to my brother or mother.
OI All in One Milk
A leave in treatment for hair. I’ll try it out after I wash my hair. It smells kind of strong, almost medicinal. So, I’m not thrilled with it.
Eau So Divine
I actually love the smell of this perfume. I wish I could wear it but all perfumes bother my allergies. It has a great vanilla tinged scent, though. I love vanilla. This perfume brand seems to throw their samples out a lot. I think most perfume samples I’ve gotten have been this brand. This is the only one that I actually liked the scent of, though.
Ultra Long Lasting Lipstick in Kitty
Good sized sample and a good color but when I opened it the lipstick fell out. It broke in shipping, I guess. It could be put in a pot to use still but It’s to dry for my lips and I doubt I can trade it broken. So, I’m unsure what to do with it. Maybe my Mom will like it. It isn’t AS dry as some long lasting lip color. So, it has that going for it.
OI Shampoo & OI Conditioner
Packet samples of the shampoo and conditioner that goes with the leave in treatment. I probably won’t use these but I might. I usually don’t try random hair products. I have weird reactions to them most of the time. It might be worth trying the samples, though, just to see if they may be one of the few I can use.
Not my favorite box by far. Maybe next month’s will be better. It’s October so I’m hoping for at least one Pumpkin scented or Halloween themed thing. 🙂
